. governor romney was simply elaborating on what obama senior strategist axelrod said about the effort to target key demographics, namely women. is this an example of why exactly romney lost? >> yes. it's basically what he said out loud in public. he confirmed that it was what he did think. it sounds like he really does think that. financial gifts to people is not really what happened. lots of republicans are really critical of this as well. they don't think it's helpful. mitt romney is going to be an irrelevant figure in the republican party any way. that is very unwise remark. >> this is bobby jindal, louisiana governor. guys, we don't have the sound bite? >> actually reject the notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are as a party. >> absolutely wrong. testifies a surrogate for mitt romney. is romney now kryptonite for the republican party? >> i think he has been for a long time. romney is not the only one in the party talking like this. we heard a lot of this kind of sentiment earlier on in the campaign. not just with his 4
to feed his family. what i realized is that these safety net programs, while they're -- i think governor romney would call them a handout or charity to billy, also benefit his employer because his employer has -- can pay low wages and have a fed employee and it benefits us, the consumers, because it keeps costs down. these are not just handouts to billy. this is a whole system we've created of protecting folks who are the working poor in our economy. we need to protect that. >> you know, when we talk about the relationship between income tax rates and inequality, i'm struck by the golden age in this this country. under eisenhower it was 90%, from kennedy through the carter years it was 70%. reagan got it down to 28%, and right now the debate is should we go up to 36% on to 36.9%. sister, my question is if we're talking about you using the tax code to address the equality, we're not having the debate nooe we need to have. this is a higher and more progressive attack system. could it get on the agenda realistically? >> well, i think we're taking steps towards that. when you do the analysis
election. there has been mostly complimentary talk about governor romney saying he was a good man. he also had a good plan but there has been talk about he never really connected fully with the american people. to that point, governor jindal was asked about a comment romney made on a conference call yesterday with donors. he said he lost because president obama offered, quote gifts to young people and minorities. jindal rejected that and alluded to romney's damaging 47% comment, saying the gop had to fight for 100% of the vote. >> let's show we're the party not of big banks, wall street, of bailouts, not big business. we're the party that stands for families and small businessings, those simply working hard to pay their bills so their kids can get even better jobs. >> reporter: there's also been a lot of talk about the hispanic vote. of course president obama got 71%. mitt romney just 27%. compare that to the 44% that president bush got in 2004. you can see the party has its demographics problem. they're talking about softening their stance on immigration. possibly talking about, comprehen
and not the reason governor romney lost. what's the reaction been like in washington? >> republicans are very disappointed by this, and there are three big reasons. first of all, this is sour grapes, like this certainly isn't gracious. second, it's just not accurate. there were many, many other factors that were involved, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almos
, there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. well, to give you one example i do think that he did a terrific job running the olympics. i would like to get ideas from him and see if there are some ways we can potentially work together. >> stephanie: if it were me, i would would have said with government money. >> but you're not gracious. >> stephanie: i'm a left wing hate monger. as you know. >> according to sean hannity and brian mulroney. >> stephanie: right. >> cry baby sore losers. >> stephanie: let's do compare and contrast. here is mitt romney in a phone call to downers. >> the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition give an extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> e ordinary gifts medicare and social security is stuff we paid into. >> stephanie: i mean really talk like just continuing to be in denial. and it's just so insulting. >> bobby jindal took him to task saying romney was dividing america by speaking like that. >> s
. hilary, you just heard the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal, he's very critical of mitt romney, the campaign he ran. what did you make of that? >> well, i think there's just a whole lot of distancing going on. pretty typical after a losing campaign. i thought, you know, governor jindal spoke well about some of the mistakes republicans have made. a little bit of a mixed message. i think this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in

governor bobby jindal took exception to mr. romney's comments. >> i think that is absolutely wrong. we have got to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go after 100% of the votes, not 53%. we need to go after every single vote. you to connect your policies to the aspirations of the american people. i don't think the cam pape did that. as a result, this became a contest between personalities and chicago loves that. >> eric: here is where i am. i'll throw it out there quickly. i think the republicans need to focus their attention. some people may be too far right and some may be close to the center for you. pick a lane, republicans. get behind someone and win an election. this infighting is no good for me. >> greg: i kind of disagree. this is called a hate fact. it's a fact that people hate. this is how obama won. however, you do have to go after every vote. but you have to play the game they do. that is what the argument is about. even loves santa claus on christmas morning but no one wants the credit card in january. until that bill is due, which will probably come in mandarin the
to turn them out to vote. >> louisiana's republican governor bobby jindal says romney has it all wrong and is not speak for the entire republican party. >> absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party. i think that has got to be one of the most fundamental type ways in this election. >> governor jindal is considered a possible presidential candidate in 2016. he says if republicans plan to rebound from their election loss, they have to stop dividing american voters. >>> 47 days until we hit the fiscal cliff. but billionaire warren buffett doesn't see what all the fuss is about. the oracle of omaha says as long as president obama holds firm on the wealthiest americans paying more taxes, we can go right over the clip without plunging into a recession. poppy harlow sat down for an exclusive interview with the founder of berkshire hathaway. >> i was shocked when he answered me. you'll hear from him in a moment. he's the only ceo i know, i was just talkin
. something you will hear about in 2016, where you used to live in louisiana, the governor, bobby jindal who was a staumplg romney supporter, that these remarks by romney are categorically untrue. >> he did. jindal is as conservative as they get, what he said, we have to stop dividing the american voters. if we are going to be a competitive party and when elections on the national stage, and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly. one, we are fighting for 100% of the votes. and second, our policies, benefit every american who wants to pursue the american dream. period. a lot of infighting between republicans. as they try to sort through the aftermath of the election here. but it is reminiscent, these comments, about the 47% tape. i'm confused as to how contraception, health care or college loans are racial issues and how they are -- they're gifts to people, as opposed to tools to help people live a better or healthier life. >> you have to think this, this phone call with some of the top donors. here he was, they gave basically $9
